The Little-Known Church Hiding In Massachusetts That Is An Absolute Work Of Art

While Boston may be known for its beautiful cathedrals and chapels, it’s not the only place in Massachusetts where you can find an absolutely breathtaking church. St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish in the town of Adams is one of the most striking places of worship in the state.

This beautiful church was founded in 1902. It is Polish-American Roman Catholic parish in the Diocese of Springfield which caters especially to Polish immigrants in Adams. In its early days, the pews at this church were filled with new Polish Americans who had come to Adams to work in the cotton and paper mills in town. The church is most remarkable for its gorgeous arches and colorful interior decorated with gold, crystal and gleaming marble.
